And A Partridge In A Pear Tree...

If you follow Talking Shop on Westword’s Show and Tell blog, you already know about the 24 Days of Christmas at Talulah Jones, the well-grounded, half-children’s, half-girly boutique at 1122 East 17th Avenue, where Robin Lohre has been hosting trunk shows featuring local artisans every single night since December 1. We’ve been offering daily previews of the 24 Days artists from the get-go.

The project is a lovely idea — good for artists, good for Lohre and good for everyone else, too (because — we repeat — shopping lo-cal keeps your money in the ’hood). And you have five more days to indulge, since 24 Days will end with a finale on Christmas Eve, featuring Lohre’s own Frill wearable whimsies. In the meantime, shop with Nicole Quast of Eurothriftonista, who hand-knits head-bands, hats and neck-warmers from luxurious yarns, tonight; pieces by Renee Burger McMichael (scarves made from reclaimed sweater parts), Kate Adams (Sweet Pea Pockets photo-printed bags) and Anne Franklin (handmade gift items) fill out the week. The free shows run from 5 to 7:30 p.m.; for more info, go to or call 303-832-1230.
Mondays-Saturdays, 5-7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 3-5:30 p.m. Starts: Dec. 1. Continues through Dec. 24, 2010

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
